Who would have thought that when I decided to design a PINK room last month that I would be a trend setter!
Well, not really. I can't claim that PANTONE has named this lovely shade of pink (what they call honeysuckle) because of me and my recent design work...but I can dream right?
A Color for All Seasons
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world.
This is what PANTONE is saying.
While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.
“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
Eiseman continues, “The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.”
What do you think of pink being the color of 2011?
2010 is coming to an end in just a few weeks. So many things to attend to these days. I always love sharing my adventures, and as always, look forward to continuing to keep up with new and exciting things in 2011.
